Meet Salima; Social Entrepreneur and Brilliant Mama

I feel so fortunate to be a part of the Wymbin community!! There are so many reasons Wymbin is a magical fit for us — I share Australian roots with Wymbin, I taught yoga for over a decade in Canada and Australia and love the Wymbin curriculum, we call Inglewood home, and my daughter, Ullani, is enamoured with her teachers Miss Brenna and Miss Aja. While she’s making crafts, wondering the outdoors, or honing her downward dog with the Wymbin team, I am usually on a work call with laundry going while straightening my hair. Or something like that.

Since 2015, I’ve been working as the CEO of Humainologie, a Calgary nonprofit whose mission is spread empathy, increase inclusion, reduce discrimination. Recently, we’ve partnered with Wymbin on The Period Project, a gender-inclusive initiative led by Humainologie, to deliver period products to Calgarians who need them. (You can join our community effort by dropping off sealed containers of pads, tampons and menstrual cups at Wymbin.)
